DOMESTIC SHIPPING POLICY
We use the services of the U.S. Postal Service to deliver orders to you. We have no control over the rates these companies charge. There are many factors that can contribute to the cost of shipping your products to you such as weight, size and destination.
Internet Hobbies cannot ship goods to third parties. You will have to receive the goods and then ship them to the other party.
UNITED STATES POSTAL SERVICE
Our default USPS Parcel Post Select shipping charge is $9.95 (slightly higher for orders in excess of $100.00 of shipped merchandise that require proof of deliver and insurance). This is the default amount that appears on your order confirmation. This charge will usually be enough to ship one 2 lbs. parcel to most locations in the contiguous United States. In all cases, Internet Hobbies only charges our customers the actual cost of shipping. That means larger, heavier and orders which require multiple cartons will be charged exactly what USPS charges us. It also means we will reduce the shipping charge if it is less than the above default amount.
ADDITIONAL SHIPPING CHARGES BECAUSE OF WEIGHT, SIZE OR MULTIPLE CARTONS
If you pay for your order using a credit card, Internet Hobbies will adjust your invoice and charge your credit card for any additional shipping charges.
If you paid for your order using PayPal, you will receive a separate PayPal money request for these additional fees. Your order will be held until payment is received.
INTERNET HOBBIES FRAUD DETERRENT POLICY
All orders over $100.00 will require signature at time of delivery and insurance. This is done to protect us from fraudulent orders. If this will pose a problem for you, please contact our Customer Service Department to make special arrangements for the delivery of your order.
If you are paying for your goods using PayPal, you will be required to enter your verified PayPal address in the shipping block. There are no exceptions to this rule. If your address is not PayPal verified, we will contact you and request you contact PayPal and get your account verified before we proceed with your order.
EXPEDITED AIR SHIPPING AVAILABLE
We also ship orders using USPS Priority Mail and USPS Expedited Shipping There are limitations on what products can be shipped using these airborne services. This is usually, but not always, restricted to solvent based paints and aerosol cans. If your order contains any of these products, Internet Hobbies will automatically change your shipping to USPS Parcel Post Select or First Class Mail.
THERE'S NEVER A HANDLING OR PROCESSING FEE AT INTERNET HOBBIES
Have you ever wondered what those extra fees are that our competitors like to add to their shipping charges. What's a "handling fee?" Do they think it's okay to charge you for just handling your order? And don't they have to "process" your order anyway? Why is there an additional charge for that? Is it just additional profit that they try and get away with from their customers?
We think it's high time to offer you a different choice. WE ONLY CHARGE OUR CUSTOMERS THE ACTUAL TRUE COST OF SHIPPING. No additional hidden fees or charges. Shipping is not a profit center at Internet Hobbies.
DON'T FALL FOR THE FREE SHIPPING SCAM
Are you paying for someone else’s “Free Shipping?” Chances are if you’re buying from one of our competitors who offers “free shipping”, you’ll actually be paying a lot more from them than for the same products available at Internet Hobbies.
Here's a good example illustrating what we are saying. One of our competitors offers the new Tamiya 1/32 P51D Mustang on their website for $142.72. Their free shipping policy starts at $200.00. This kit would not qualify. Our price on that same kit is only $119.99. This is a savings of $22.73. These guys have their free shipping factored into their higher selling price, whether you get it or not. That means everyone is paying our competitors higher prices just so a few can take advantage of this free shipping scam.
We don’t offer free shipping because our every day prices are usually the lowest available on the internet. We don’t think it is good business to overcharge our customers and then offer them a policy which in the long run costs them a heck of a lot more money. Remember that old saying, “There is no free lunch.”
